i can say to you that anderson will be the future of football with messi. he get´s a injured this season and failed very months but he´s a TOP STAR PLAYERNot really noticed Anderson that much to rate him but Nani looked like a good player when I watched Sporting - Inter, still I don't think it is much for worry about for other teams though. I may be an overly biased Liverpool fan but I don't think Nani or Anderson will get straight in the first team, probably go out on loan I reckon or at least one of them will to 'mature' a bit.
I apologise to all Benfica fans who may disagree but Luisão is one of the most over rated defenders I have ever seen, along with Alex (PSV) and Materazzi (Inter)
Personally can't see it, why mention Jenas and Bents? There's no new Gerrards or Owen's out there.not the case I think. People will look up to these class players playing in our league and try to emulate their skills. We could could get a generation of Henrys and Ronaldos rather than more Jermaine Jenas and Darren Bents
I said a generation. That's why I mentioned two average players. Owen and Gerrard are one offs, you could argue that Walcott is the new Owen and he was influenced by Henry, so it's working in part.why mention Jenas and Bents? There's no new Gerrards or Owen's out there.
That isn't necessarily true.not the case I think. People will look up to these class players playing in our league and try to emulate their skills. We could could get a generation of Henrys and Ronaldos rather than more Jermaine Jenas and Darren Bents
Totaly correctEnglish football has too much money flowing through it that it'll never create the kind of stars that Brazil and Portugal create. These players come from a poor background and master their skills to survive and feed their families rather than paying for sports cars and hookers.
I quote. As an example, Sporting CP takes some players from the powerty and gives them the oportunity of becoming great stars. It happened with Quaresma, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani, for example. No intention of being critical, but I think that England (and France, Germany, Spain, ...) don't bet on youth formation, so they usually have a National Team only for 2/3/4 years...Totaly correct
Did Hoefkens have a good game?Saw this Nani guy with Portugal against Belgium...scored the first goal for Portugal after breaking Carl Hoefkens nose with his elbow in the same action...really great player...
Portugal was by far the better team but they scored both goals after blatant fouls...
